When will interactive mode work in Windows?

+4 votes

Hi MultiChain team,

I noticed that the interactive mode is not able to be activated in windows system. It become a bit troublesome to enter "multichain-cli chainName ...." everytime.

Is there any alternative solution? Or when will the interactive mode work in Windows?

We don't yet have an ETA on this but we'll take your question as evidence to bump it up our priority list.

For now some alternatives could be:

  • Use the Linux version of multichain-cli inside Docker to communicate with a node running on Windows (or indeed on Linux).
  • Rename the multichain-cli executable to m (it doesn't care) and use a one-letter blockchain name like c so you just need to write m c before each line instead.
